Fierce clashes erupted again on Monday in the central Libyan city of Sirte between Islamic State (IS) militants and forces loyal to the Tripoli-based government.

Mohamed Zadma, who is leading the security operation in Sirte, told Anadolu Agency that his forces had been “hunting down” IS militants near a number of government buildings in the city.

Zadma said his forces had killed an as-yet-unspecified number of IS militants during the confrontations.

A local resident said IS militants were using artillery in the fighting, damaging residential buildings near IS-controlled areas.
